Bordeaux vs Lyon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 11th January 2020
Kick off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Matmut Atlantique.
Bordeaux come into this game on poor form and have slipped down the pecking order. They are currently in 13th place and have lost their last 3 games in row. They face a tough match here but the league is still so close that if they won they could be back into the top 10.
The club’s last game ended in a 1-0 defeat at Rennes and at home they have won almost 50% of their games. They did lose their last home game which was against Strasbourg but prior to that had won their last 3 in a row.
Since Sylivinho was sacked it hasn’t gone completely to plan for Lyon who are still struggling under their new coach Rudi Garcia. The club are in 12th and have the same points as Bordeaux but a club like Lyon the objective is to be top 2 at worst top 3, and they are currently 7 points from that target.
Lyon have gone their last 2 games with no wins and only one win in their last 4 games. What Lyon do possess is a decent away record where they have the 2nd best in the league. Though the club have only won 40% of their games on the road the good news is that they are recently unbeaten in their last 3.

Bordeaux vs Lyon: Prediction
If Lyon want it they can win this game. This fixture has a history of goals and we think both teams to score could be nailed on.
Lyon have a much better team than this season suggests and Bordeaux has traditionally struggled against them, even at home. We also can’t ignore that Lyon have solid away form and that is what is pushing us to see them get all three points in this game.
There is really good value in this game, and Lyon are a great price. What surprises us is that both teams to score with the statistical chance it has is also a very good price so get on.
